Burton Creek Trail Runs
"The Burton Creek Trail Run takes place on a beautiful, fun and challenging trail system within Burton Creek State Park in Tahoe City, CA. The course features miles of single track through pine forests and high sierra meadows. Burton Creek drains the runoff from Mt. Watson into Lake Tahoe. You'll see and hear the creek often and June is a great wildflower time of year as well." 5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon distances. The first race in the Big blue Trail Run Point series.
